Acupuncture is an amazing therapy which is widely recognised due to it’s great results. It involves inserting very fine, sterile needles into specific points throughout the body. This is virtually pain-free and very safe for all stages of pregnancy. Acupuncture derives from Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used successfully for thousands of years. More recently, it has been more widely used in western medical approaches and many healthcare professionals are training in acupuncture techniques specific to their area of expertise to achieve the best possible results for those in their care.
Acupuncture can be safely used at any point in pregnancy right through to the postnatal period and so is a great option for many women during this time. Maternity acupuncture at Mamma Me Time can be used as a stand alone therapy or in combination with other therapies to achieve the very best possible results for each client.

I had two acupuncture sessions before I went into labor. Chrissie is so knowledgeable in her field, she genuinely seems invested in you from the get go, to the point she was one of the first people I announced the birth of my son to. Thank you Chrissie for all your help, I have recommended you to all my pregnant friends, you’re amazing!!
